Elevating the classic pennant from sports memorabilia to a celebration of the everyday – that’s the concept behind The People’s Pennant.

Retro Wool Pennants

Launched in March of 2012, the Pennant People (Jessica, Tim and Eric of Greenpoint, Brookyln) enlist various graphic designers, typographers and illustrators to create retro wool pennants that are hand-sewn and printed by hand. Made in a limited quantity of 250 each, the pennants measure 12″ x 30″.  And at only $25 a piece, they are fun decor for everything from dorm rooms to offices.

As of now, they have 8 beautiful pennants available for purchase, all shown below.
